Energy and youth (vocals, experimentation, freshness). That's why I am always harping on the early era. Used to be the set lists, and even now, that matters, since CE>OO>CE or DS>SS>11 sequences get my attention. The songs from Beauty and Workingman's did it for me early (70) but not as much as the years went by. The most important signpost for me is how Jerry sounds, vocally and leadwise, with respect to energy and youthfulness...

The fact that there was a show made for a good show.

Any real Deadhead knew going in that ANYTHING could happen. Especially true in the early years.
